We stopped in because of all the hype and were disappointed. The prices were high and the food was only marginal. The service was friendly but very slow.

Pretty expensive and you get little for the price. I wasn't disappointed, I just wasn't impressed. Make your own burger instead!

We liked the burgers but they were very average however, I do appreciate the fact they use grass fed beef.

We stopped at Bubba's for a quick bite in Hanalei. We were pleasantly surprised by the speed of ordering, deliver and taste. We will definitely recommend Bubba's to friends.

My hamburger this time and on my last visit was just so-so, and it really was one of the worst milkshakes I've ever had. You can do so much better elsewhere... More

We've enjoyed a stop or two at Bubba's each time we've visited Kauai. Our favorite Bubba's is the Hanalei location. It has the best atmosphere and beautiful surroundings. We've always experienced great service and feel they deliver a quality product. They do have a variety of offerings. Their "Wall of Fame" which includes pics of the many celebs who have... More
